3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2005 Probably the best beer widely available in gas stations and airport bars across America. Really very excellent considering its huge production. Much more like an ale than a lager, it has great aromatics with a nice hops backbone. Well-balanced beer that is consistently available.

BOTTLE: Light brown color. A little bitter. Has a hint of a hoppy flaver. Not a bad american lager.

Bottle. Just another bitter lager for me. Had decent head that disappated and gave me somewhat of a bitter beer face to go with my burger.

a very nice american lager, very hoppy. malty flavor w/ satisfying aftertaste. it’s very good for a mass produced american beer.

A nice bronzed colour. A better lager, a bit lighter then most. As good as others, cheaper then some.

This is the beer that started it all for me, and at the time was a premium brew. Now with the grand influx of over-the- top beers, this one has been relagated to the status of "ho, hum." This "light" lager is just behind the times, a beginner’s selection. If you find a very fresh one, has a wonderful flavor with a nice hop presence. Refreshing, but it is an old hat, a has been, but better than a never was.

shaker / soapy, very floral, and quite tasty if not a bit tingly. so, hops are noticeable at least, yes, but it needs more malt to back it all up. not that complex, not that bad, and not great.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2005 Not one of my particular favorites but a good choice when you’re at a resturant with a poor selection of beer. Noticable hops, good color.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2010 If I walk into a bar and they have a limited selection, I’ll usually check for my old standbys: Bass Ale and Sam Adams Lager. On draught. Pours a golden color with a decent head. Caramelly and grainy with a light hop note on the finish.
